Victoria Hall, Dunblane

Located on Stirling Road, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) south southwest of the centre of Dunblane and on the opposite bank of the Allan Water, Victoria Hall provides a centre for community events. It was built in 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, but rebuilt in 1926 following a fire the previous year. Externally the building is relatively modest, in red and pink sandstone with curved gables. However the main hall features a decorated ceiling, which curves gently, and a sprung dance floor and balcony. This space can accommodate up to 250 people, while the Lesser Hall can seat up to 48 and the Supper Room can hold up to 40 people. The halls are used by sports clubs, societies and local businesses, as well as a venue for dances, civil marriages and an annual Christmas Market.

The Hall is owned by Stirling Council but, since 1998, has been run by a Management Committee comprising a group of unpaid volunteers who operate as a registered charity. This group have raised money to restore the hall to its former glory.
